Step 1:

Fill the empty and rinsed out plastic bottle about 3/4 full with water.

Step 2:

Secure the cap and freeze.

Step 3:

These handy items can be used in your lunchbox, cooler, or to ice an injury from your latest instructable experiment. Not only are we recycling plastic bottles we never have to change the water.

Step 4: Warnings

NOTE: Do not drink the water because it has been said that plastic bottles release a toxin when frozen. Potentially fatal or cancerous if you drink out of a frozen plastic bottle.

      Hello, and welcome to the Instructables community! It's great that you've decided to tell the world about something you've made by publishing an Instructable. We just wanted to let you know that your project still needs a little more work if you want it to be well received on Instructables. Projects that don't include certain basic elements tend not to get the attention that they deserve, and so we'd love for you to check out the list below of what makes a successful Instructable. Successful projects on Instructables include: - clearly written details of a finished project with instruction - as many steps as are necessary to explain your project - clear images that you took of your project for most, if not all of your steps - an intro image - proper spelling and grammar - appropriate cautions or safety considerations I'll give you another opportunity to make any final changes to your project before we publish it. Once you're all set to go, please republish your project and send me a quick comment letting me know that you've made some changes. I'll give it a quick final check to make sure you're on the right path, and then remove this note. Thanks for your submission and we hope to see your project published soon!

      That's a really good tip, however it's just a little short for a full instructable. Now if you had a whole bunch of tips like this... But if you don't I have a better solution, Instructopedia. I added you as a collaborator and you can add this to the food section.

      That's the idea, see how all of the stuff is added under the step? the step is the section, helps keep things neat and very tidy...
